  1. Adobe files downloaded via Outlook have a 'blank/impossible' date modified value


    Hello,


    I am currently experiencing an issue with pdf files that I download to my computer via Outlook. When viewed in File Explorer, the 'Date Modified' column is empty.

    Adobe files downloaded via Outlook have a 'blank/impossible' date modified value 651e4c1f-828d-4f85-a95d-b4c5b8858a10?upload=true.jpg


    When I go into the Properties of each file, it shows that the pdf was created and modified on 12/31/4500.

    Adobe files downloaded via Outlook have a 'blank/impossible' date modified value 45c47711-e148-4b5a-b802-b146e348962e?upload=true.jpg


    Is there a way to fix this?

    Illogical date modified updating

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand that the modified date is just as important as the created date within the metadata of a given file. We will look into this for you.
    However, in order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers to the questions below.

    1. What is the build of Windows 10 running on your system?
    2. Was there any major change or an update on your system prior to which you weren’t facing this issue?
    3. Is the issue only with the pictures taken from the camera or the other pictures and files within the system as well?

    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it is helpful to you.

    Method 1: Enable the Date Modified Column in the File Explorer.

    To enable the Date modified column within the particular folder, please follow the steps below.

    1. Open the Folder in which you wish to see the Date modified column.
    2. Right-click on the
      Header for Name, date, type etc. This will give you a list of columns that can be displayed.
    3. Select the option Date modified, clearing the tick removes that column.
    4. Modify a file and check if it is being reflected in the Date modified column.

    If the issue still persists, where you aren’t able to see the value in the Date modified column even after making the changes to the particular file, please follow ‘Method 2’.

    Method 2: Create a new user account.

    This issue could be due to profile corruption. Hence to eliminate possibilities, I would suggest you to ‘Create
    a local user or administrator account
    ’ and check if the issue persists.

    Note:
    You will not see all your files under your default file location. So your data will be saved under C:\users\user_name.

    We await your response.

    Impossible 'modified' dates on files - how?

    Going through some folders on my laptop, there are a number of .wav files that I created myself on a digital piano I bought in late 2015. The weird thing is the 'Date Modified' column shows they were modified in 2013, which I know is impossible because I had no digital piano in 2013.

    The 'Date Created' column shows 2017, which makes sense. These files have been copied to a USB stick once or twice, but I can't see how that would make the modified date appear as being 4 years earlier.
    No one else has access to my laptop; no malware, yada yada yada.

    Any ideas on how this can happen?

    lack of Date Modified in File Explorer saved From Outlook Microsoft office emails since May 18th update

    I have an issue with the " of lack of the Date Modified in File Explorer that was saved From an Outlook Microsoft office emails since May 18th update.

    It is only happening on email with those attachments that you save to the computer..

    If you view PDF document file proprietress says:

    Created: " Friday, December 31st, 4500, 6:00.00PM

    Modified: " Friday, December 31st, 4500, 6:00.00PM

    Those dates is the same on every PDF that comes in via email. I feel that Microsoft office is changing the dates of the actual PDF... this has been happening since last update of May 18th.

    When you view this same PDF file in the windows 10 File explorer, there is no date listed at all! That field is blank!

    Has anyone else seeing this issue? It is very annoying and frustrating.
